evidence as follows:
1. today i read the second review of the Juan Davila show by a SMH ‘arts writer’ in as many weeks!
I mean, he’s great, but, please, it’s a little monotonous!
Do Tracey and John go to any other galleries apart from the MCA?
More to the point, does the arts editor actually read the submissions entering his inbox?
2. the artlife’s poll, (that has been running for far too long now, but anyway) is officially gospel.
the top response to Winning an art competition is is
A way to pay off some credit card debt” at 28%.
Today, Lucy Culliton said, when asked what she was going to spend her winnings from the Portia Geach on said “pay of my credit card debt”!!!*
hmmm.. food for thought.
